File:Bryn Athyn Cathedral.jpg|thumb|300px|right|Bryn Athyn Cathedral The '''General Church of the New Jerusalem''' (also referred to as the ''General Church'' or just simply the ''New Church'') is an international church based in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, and based on the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg (often called ''the Writings for the New Church'' or just ''the Writings''). The General Church of the New Jerusalem distinguishes itself from other Swedenborgian churches by teaching that the Writings for the New Church are the Heavenly Doctrine revealed by the Lord in His Second Coming and have authority equal to the Old and New Testaments. It is larger, newer, and more conservative than the Swedenborgian Church of North America.
